Best Minecraft Seeds (2021) – Xbox One, PS4, & All Platforms!

We're taking a look at some of the best seeds for Minecraft!

Our Minecraft Best Seeds post features a bunch of newly found seeds to some good areas to start your next Minecraft world. We have cool seeds for every type and version of the game! Seeds are a great way to get your adventure started in an exciting area. With the random nature of landscape creation in the game, it's nice to at least have some guarantee of what you are getting yourself into.

Our list of some of the best Minecraft seeds will give you a bunch of fun starting point options for your next world! I've listed what version of Minecraft they will work with. Bedrock works with the Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and mobile versions! We'll be listing some coordinates along with each seed, so that you can check out some key areas in the various areas of the world. You can enable coordinates when you create a world in Bedrock or use the F3 key on Java. You can also make your way over to the spot or use the /teleport command!

In this beautiful map seed, you spawn right inside a coastal Village that is surrounded by mountains. This is the perfect location to build a massive empire that is protected from raids and pillages. There is only one direction for enemies to come from, so it's really just a matter of fortifying your defenses there. You can also take advantage of the massive mountains and mine straight through them from your hometown.

In this wonderful mansion map, you spawn in the middle of a massive Jungle biome with a Mesa Biome all around you. If you go a bit Southwest and cross the Mesa, you will find a pleasant oasis area locked in by the Mesa Biome with a Woodland Mansion! This is an extremely rare find and makes a wonderful base of operation (once it's cleared out) with a fantastic, warm-colored view!

Seeds like this are one in a million. From your spawn location, you will find every single Biome in on the list, including the rare variants. Some of those variants are rare enough by themselves, but to have them all show up near spawn is almost impossible. This is the perfect map for you if you want to access to every resource in the game. Talk about taking over the world!

We wanted to include this seed because it has an fascinating spawn location. Badlands aren't the most common of Biomes, but this seed spawns you next to a large lake in the Badlands, with an Ocean Monument right in the center! If you've ever been to Salt Lake City, you'll feel like this is the Minecraft version of it.

Beautiful Mountain Top Village at Spawn

This seed is just breathtaking, as soon as you spawn you can see the height in which you are. You can see all the beauty all around you. Then as you climb down and look up, you can see the water cascading down the mountain like a waterfall, encasing the village, it's just wonderful.

You spawn in a Mesa Biome near two abandoned villages on this map. Mesa biomes are known to be very aesthetically pleasing, and this is your perfect chance to figure out the secret to why the Villages nearby are abandoned. Legend has it, there is a Villager house on a floating island somewhere on the map. Perhaps the Villagers there will know the secrets?

What is a Minecraft Seed?

A seed is a randomly generated number that represents a specific world that has been created when you start a new game of Minecraft. This seed can be used by other players to play in the exact world you are playing in!

How to Use Minecraft Seeds

Using Seeds in Minecraft is relatively simple, and the process is largely the same across all versions of the game. When you are creating a new world, look for the "More World Options..." area, or in some cases you'll just find a blank text box that you can paste your seed code into.

Minecraft how to use a seed example

Once you find this box, paste the particular seed you want to load into it and you're done! The more complicated part, is that some seeds don't work for some versions of the game. For example, all positive seeds (numbers without a - at the beginning of them) are usable from Bedrock to Java. Furthermore, if you have a negative seed from Bedrock, you have to add 4294967296 to it for it to work in the Java version (Learn more here). Finally, negative Java seeds will NOT work in Bedrock at all. There will be irregularities between Bedrock and Java seeds, which can include differences in neutral temperature and ocean biomes.

If you've got an updated version of Minecraft on your mobile device or console (Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One), then all Bedrock codes should work!

  1. This was not helpful! It said “all platforms”. IT ONLY SHOWED JAVA AND BEDROCK. This is useless.

    1. Java and Bedrock are the only two versions, I’m afraid. Java is the first PC version, and Bedrock is the new PC version, as well as all other platforms!

  2. None of these seeds work on my Java 1.16, I’ve tried all of the positive seeds and they are not generating the world I’m supposed to spawn in, what is happening

  3. java 1.16.5 seed 164698525 double spawner room inside huge mineshaft cave spiders and zombies 634/22/320 on the surface there’s also a ruined portal amongst other things

  4. The loot in the many desert temples was 1st all the good stuff> 2 Enchanted Golden Apples, 8 Golden Apples, 10 Emeralds, 8 Diamonds, 21 Gold, 9 Iron, 2 Mending Books, 1 Efficiency 4 Book, 1 Blast Protection 4 Book, 1 Smite 5 Book, 1 Impaling 4 Book, 1 Sweeping Edge 3 Book, 1 Piercing 1 Book and 8 Saddles 2nd the horse Armor> 1 Diamond, 8 Gold and 3 Iron 3rd extras> 2 stacks of String, 1 and a half stacks of Rotten flesh, 2 and a half of Bones, 14 Spider eyes, basically 2 stacks of Gun powder and some Sand
    over all it was amazing for a start on this world on survival plus you spawn in the jungle and there is a temple in the jungle but that is not included with these items thank you for sharing this seed with me and others. I hope people see this so people know what are in these temples

  5. No jungle seeds for the switch??!! I’m desperate!!

  6. found a lovely seed, 655089777 – three villages near spawn, three more villages a bit further out, two pillager outposts, a broken portal, desert temple, stronghold under one of the near villages, (co-ords – dig down at 579, 78, -706) ravine, perfect starter seed for survival

    1. sorry, forgot to say this is bedrock edition on windows 10

  7. Um hi I loved this website it gave me so many different seeds and biomes thank you

  8. Spawn in a village, ravine, stronghold, mineshaft next to a jungle biome.
    Java Seed: -921616815

  9. Thanks you soooo much i love this site i always use this site for promocodes,minecraft seeds but can you add build a boat for treasure glitchs:D

  10. seed 562512367 has a ravine if you look closely

  11. It is the best

  12. Found a seed while making a map. Seed has a stronghold under an igloo!

    Seed: -5710206521012265242

    Coordinates: -275 63 1605!

    1. Please include whether this is a Bedrock or Java seed and what version you played it on!

  13. I JUST FOUND AN EPIC SEED IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIAMOND PICKAXE OR A DIAMOND SWORD. THE SEED IS :297638368.
    when you spawn, go to the coordinates 1160, 60 , -56. there should be a buried treasure that contains 3 DIAMONDS. this is so easy you can get the diamonds in like 30 seconds since the coordinates are pretty close to the spawn point
    ****** WARNING : I HAVE THE VERSION 1.14 SO THIS MIGHT NOT WORK FOR OTHER VERSIONS.

  14. I found a really good seed that takes you straight to the stronghold (coordinates 1135 50 -255) and the end portal is easy to find. Not to mention, four spots with diamonds in that same cave, as well as a mineshaft and a huge ravine about a hundred blocks away. The seed is 548048171 on bedrock. Try it out! It’s a really easy way to start off a survival world.

    1. WOW THANK YOU SO MUCH I was searching for years for seeds that contain strongholds. BUT my problem wasn’t strongholds. I found like 10 of them but none of hem contained the end portal. FINALLY THIS ONE DOES THANK YOU 🙂

      1. You’re welcome!! I’m glad you like it😊

  15. VILLAGE ISLAND (JAVA -1.14+) Doesn’t spawn the same in 1.16.

  16. does the last one have a bamboo jungle if so i needthe cordanents

  17. The seed 122516080895 is an open island spawn with a full size shipwreck and a spider and skeleton spawner within 15 blocks of each other directly underneath the ship. Along with a water side village following a river from the ocean for easy villager transport. While digging north at y 25 leads to an abandoned mine shaft that goes down to diamond level.

    1. whats the coordinates of skeleton dungeon?

    2. its on java 1.15.2, it also has and ocean monument north west of spawn

  18. SnoverMC’s seed also has a stronghold right under the mushroom island 😀

    1. I’ve played this seed for a long time, it’s got some pretty good features. The stronghold underneath the mushroom island, the two jungle temples in the jungle north of the ocean, a bit more north east of there you’ll find double witch huts and slightly more east of there (on the edge of the badlands) there’s a flower biome with skeleton spawner AND river, meaning you can easily farm all dyes in one spot. Slightly to the south of spawn and then east in the snowy tundra you’ll find a village with an igloo in it as well.

      1. This epic 1.16 seed works in both BEDROCK AND JAVA! (1747935) This seeds spawns you in a snow village with a blacksmith BUT 100 blocks away is just something! 5 interconnected villages with a woodland mansion literally attached to it which is SORROUNDED BY BIOMES AND A RUINED PORTAL NEARBY! If you love villages AND woodland mansions AND biomes then this is a seed for you!

  19. I just found an amazing seed with the spawn next to a shipwreck full of emeralds and a village. Check it out: 8536231227105585937

    1. Version 1.15.2

  20. Seed: -1497294059

    At spawn there is a ice spikes biome near and a village. Also about 3 caves with coal, iron, and diamonds. A huge mountain that is hovering above a village is near the village. A swamp with a witch is East from the ice spikes. And badlands after that.

    1. Would need version and platform to be helpful.

  22. 3269530392633675163
    Spawn in a survival island without any trees, with an ocean monument nearby. This is the ultimate test of skill for any long time player.

    This are the things i found interesting while exploring the seed. The worst thing about all this discoveries, is that i was just looking for a Jungle to get some Cocoa and i couldn’t find it

    1. Nice job, thanks for the information!

      1. Oh and i found the jungle on x300 z-1300

  26. Flower biomes? For bee farms?

    1. I’ve included a seed that has a flower biome, but I haven’t found many specifically for that purpose.

  27. Village Island one didn’t work for me… I spawned in the middle of a forest somewhere that was definitely not an island 🙁 Idk why seeds never work for me anything I could be doing wrong?

    1. Well, I just tested that seed and it doesn’t work exactly the same with 1.15.1 which is the recent patch. It’s also only for the Java version of the game, so if you’re playing on a console or using the Windows version then it won’t work.

  28. Hey, I know the amazing mountain village is a really great seed, but there’s one problem. T H E R E ‘ S N O D E S E R T A N Y W H E R E . That kinda ruins the whole fun for me.

  29. I did not find anything for Xbox. please fix

    1. Xbox should be able to use Bedrock codes?

  30. what is the seed for Features Map
    6 in advance

    1. It’s this one: -772124751310384583
